Guest: Margaret George, New York Times best-selling author
Renowned author, Margaret George, is an Ancient Rome fanatic and has been studying the life of Nero for thirty years. Next week, her second and final book on Nero, THE SPLENDOR BEFORE THE DARK, will be released. It picks up on the first book released in 2017, THE CONFESSIONS OF YOUNG NERO, and tells the story of the final years of Nero’s life as he faced his biggest challenge, the Great Fire of Rome.
On this program, Margaret George shares her fascination with Nero, often considered one of history’s “bad boys,” and talks about her own remarkable career as one of America’s most revered historical novelists.
